My Students

I teach 50 third grade students who are falling in love with reading! My students have a passion for reading and will almost always choose to read a book over any other assignment. They are growing so fast and books are their true passion.

My students come from very diverse backgrounds and each one brings a truly unique personality to the class.

At the end of the day, though, they are just your typical kids! They enjoy playing and socializing. They like to have fun and will always bring a smile to your face. This will be my third year with this group of kids and I know them so well. I can't wait to provide them with lots of new book adventures!

My kids are amazing and ultimately, they just want to read.

My Project

My kids love to read! I have invested a lot of time and money into making sure our classroom library is stocked full of great books, but now it is time to work on our book sets! Book sets are perfect for guided reading, a novel study, or literature circles.

My students have a passion for reading, and now is the perfect time to make sure it lasts.

Think back to when you were in elementary school and the joy you had when you found a great new book. This is the feeling I want for my kids this year!

I have taught this group of children reading for three years now and I know these books will take their reading to the next level.
